About the third part of his life a person spends in a dream. Healthy and high-quality sleep depends on many factors and, first of all, from the type of mattress. Only an orthopedic mattress can guarantee excellent well-being and a great mood for the whole day.
What is better: spring or flawless?
All modern mattresses with an orthopedic effect can be classified into two types – Spring and flawed. Each view has its own characteristics and advantages and therefore assert some of these two species can not be. Most people tend to believe that the orthopedic mattress should be tough, but it is not.
The choice of the model depends on the set of factors, including personal preferences.
Mattresses who are based on a spring block are divided into two groups.
With block of dependent springs
The first includes models that have a dependent block of springs, characterized by its low price. Here, the springs are connected to each other with a metal wire and attached to the frame. Such a block is called even Bonnel.
The design of such models is arranged in such a way that in the flexing of one spring, the neighboring, a hammock effect is created.
Unfortunately, this is not the only drawback. Over time, the springs begin to creak strongly and quickly come into disrepair. In addition, such models are deprived of any orthopedic properties, so people who have diseases of the spine, better not use them.
With independent spring block
The independent springs block in mattresses belonging to the second group are somewhat different. Each spring in such mattresses is packed in a separate case and, when exposed to a certain area, it is compressed regardless of the adjacent element.
This type of mattress is not only distinguished by reliability and durability, but also provides the right body location, flexing only in those places where it is really necessary. Choosing a mattress with a spring block, it is better to give preference to models with an independent spring block.
Flameless mattresses differ from previous models with their design, in which metal elements are missing, namely the springs. Multi-layer and single-layer models with varying degrees of rigidity.
In single-layer models, one material is used, the most common is polyurethane. Multilayer models use different materials laid in a certain sequence.
Due to the presence of different packages in the mattress, products are created not only with varying degrees of rigidity, but also with a variety of additional properties.
Models having in its composition such material as Struttiferber have additional properties. Depending on the woven fibers in this material distinguish warm and cold mattresses. The fibers of goat fur, well preserving heat, woven into the strottofiber, create a warm mattress effect. And flax fibers when adding to the same material create an opposite effect, namely they do not allow the mattress to heat.
In addition, some flavored mattresses due to adding such material to their layers as a Memory Foam, having a foamed structure, have the property of adjustment under the human body. The shape purchased by the mattress corresponds to the contour of a person who is on it. When you get up with a mattress, the filler is able to restore its original shape for a few minutes. Comfortable conditions for sleep, created by products with such an additional property, as a memory effect, unfortunately, not everyone likes. That is, your reasons. Reducing the air temperature in the room makes it very hard.
Flameless mattresses have a lot of advantages. The most important and, undoubtedly, excellent orthopedic properties are important, expressed in good support for the spine. Various degrees of rigidity is an opportunity for each person to choose an option suitable for him. And, of course, the long service life of products without spring blocks is an important factor when choosing.
The disadvantages of flawless mattresses include high cost of such products and insufficient softness.
Knowing about all the advantages and disadvantages of spring and springless options, it is also necessary to focus on personal sensations. To do this, you just need to test the most specimens in the store, namely, lie down and choose the one on which it will be more comfortable for you.
In order for the selection of the mattress was not spontaneous, and thoughtful, it is necessary to learn to understand the most popular fillers.
Polyurethane foam is a variety of foam rubber with improved properties. It is part of not only flawless options, but also an additional layer in products having a spring block. PPU is able to withstand significant loads for quite a long service life.
An increased level of rigidity of the filler allows manufacturers to produce mattresses with good orthopedic characteristics at an affordable price.
But there are small disadvantages of this material. PPU has a rather porous structure, due to which it absorbs moisture well, it evaporates extremely difficult. In addition, he is poorly cleaned.
Latex is very often used as a filler. The porous structure of this filler is obtained by foaming and processing the juice of the plant. Products having in its composition Latex are distinguished by wear resistance and the ability to withstand significant loads.
Latex orthopedic mattress is able to repeat the contours of the body, and thereby support the spine in the right position. Latex refers to materials that do not cause allergic reactions and with the ability to quickly remove moisture.
Artificial latex is somewhat different by properties from a natural analogue. Over time, he dries and becomes brittle. Natural latex has only one drawback – it is its high cost.
Struttiferber is made from synthetic fibers and has a lot of advantages. This fairly elastic material is not lit and does not cause allergic reactions. In addition, due to its structure, it perfectly dismisses excessive moisture. Some types of mattresses, which include this filler, have pronounced orthopedic properties. Using it, you can create options with different levels of rigidity. In addition, products that includestatifyber include long service life.
The only disadvantage of this filler is quite high cost.
Coyra or coconut fiber has a fairly rigid structure. Used as an additional layer in almost all mattresses. This natural material is not subject to rotting, as rather resistant to moisture. Coyra is a highly environmental material, since there are no toxic substances in its composition. The hard surface of this material is advised to be used with other fillers, it is recommended to use with various diseases of the spine.
The disadvantages of this filler include increased fragility and high material cost. But with due accurate (Koyra does not withstand sharp blows), the filler will last for a long time.
There are other fillers, but they are all used in the production of mattresses much less.
Stiff and size
Currently, manufacturers of mattresses offer a large selection of models with a variety of sizes. In order to correctly determine the size of the mattress suitable for you, you need to make several measurements:
- To its growth, it is necessary to add 15-20 cm, the resulting value is the minimum mattress long. The allowable width is calculated as follows: it is necessary to lie on the back with the heads laid down. The distance between the elbows with a small margin is the minimum width.
- If you need a mattress for a double bed, then similar measurements need to be carried out and partner. The obtained values are folded and several centimeters of stock are added to the amount.
In addition, when choosing a product, you need to compare the size of the product with the bedroom area. Standard size sign will help make the right choice.
The obtained values of length and width can be compared with standard sizes manufactured by manufacturers:
- As a rule, the width of single-layer models is 80 and 90 cm.
- Semi-gun mattresses having a width of 120 cm.
- Double-room widths 140, 160, 180 and 200 cm. The length of standard mattresses is produced in three versions: 190, 195 and 200 cm.
- If you wish, you can always order a mattress of individually necessary length and width, but it will cost such a product somewhat more expensive than the standard option.
For a comfortable sleep, the mattress must have a certain rigidity. There are various types of rigidity. The wildest products have a low degree of rigidity, followed by products with the degree of rigidity below the average. Next goes the average, behind it – above the average and the latest – high rigidity.
Products having a low degree of rigidity are produced from latex, foam rubber or wool is used as an additional layer. The average rigidity is formed, thanks to such fillers, like PPU, Latex, StrettoFiber. High rigidity is achieved by adding components such as coconut coir, Struttofiber, alternating them with other fillers.
To select a mattress for a specific height / human weight, you can use the following tablet.
What mattress will suit a healthy person?
For a healthy person, the mattress is selected based on the age and body weight. For young people whose age does not drive 25 years, more suitable options with medium rigidity or having a hard surface. This recommendation is not accidental, because the formation of the musculoskeletal system occurs up to 25 years and to eliminate the curvature of the spine must sleep on a rigid, smooth surface.
Todders up to three years, the mattress is most suitable, which includes coconut coir. Hard and at the same time level surface will be favorably affected on the formation of the spine. In addition, this filler is perfectly ventilated. At the achievement of the three-year-old age is allowed to change the mattress. The product with a rigid surface can be replaced by a variant of medium rigidity with an independent spring block.
Another important indicator, taken into account when choosing a mattress, is a body weight:
- For people of fragile builds fit the products with a low degree of rigidity without coconut coyra.
- For people whose weight exceeds 100 kg mark, it is better to sleep on a rigid mattress without springs.
- The product with reinforced springs is suitable for people with weight from 80 to 100 kg.
- People whose weight has an average mark (no more than 80 kg), may choose an option with an independent spring block in a litter with latex.
More specifically how to choose the right mattress, look in the following video.
How to choose for an elderly person?
For the elderly people who, as a rule, diseases of the musculoskeletal system, are too hard surfaces may cause insomnia. The most acceptable option will be mattresses with an independent high rigidity springs block.
If any diseases of the musculoskeletal system are detected, it is better to choose a double-sided mattress.
We make the right choice in osteochondrosis and hernia spine
In the presence of such a disease, as osteochondrosis should be selected by a mattress having a different degree of rigidity of each side. In periods of exacerbation, accompanied by strong pains, it is better to use a side having a soft surface. In the absence of pain, the mattress turns over to the other side, having the surface of the average degree of rigidity.
Alternative to the bilateral option – a soft mattress that can be used in osteochondrosis of the lumbar-sacrive department.
In the presence of such a disease, as the intervertebral hernia, the best option will be the use of an asymmetric mattress. For people suffering from breast osteochondrosis, the product is suitable for the surface of the middle rigidity, and in some cases the hard surface will be the best option.
The mattress, which contains a MEMORY FOAM filler, which has a form memory, will help reduce the muscle tension in any form of osteochondrosis accompanied by sharp pain.
What should be the mattress?
Any mattress possessing orthopedic properties, unthinkable without a cover or mattress staff. Case of good quality has such qualities as durability, strength, elasticity and hygroscopicity.
Such properties of the mattress staff has, thanks to jacquard material. Better if the fibers of the fabric are either natural or blended.
The fixation of the mattress holder should be durable, with choky contours. Better if the case has zippers, thanks to which it can be removed and wrapped as necessary. If the jacquard fabric, from which the neat community sews, will have impregnation, then protection against moisture and pollution is provided to all layers of the mattress and it will not have to wash it so often.
